Sea Rescue is a charity staffed by volunteers who are on call, day and night throughout the year.  They have rescue bases along the coast and on inland dams. Their goal is to prevent drowning through education, through preventative measures and through rescue.  Year after year they update and improve on their skills and techniques and they continuously investigate new technologies.

Their mission is to be the most admired and trusted rescue organisation in South Africa, inspiring volunteers to join and stay, ensuring that funders are proud to be associated with them and building national pride.

The main item of interest is that the NSRI is still busy, active and operating despite the lockdown. Rescue missions and operations are continuing unabated.

These were the questions that were asked during the show:

  • How have the NSRI had to shift their operation during this pandemic?
  • What services are your providing in the aiding the fight against Covid-19?
  • Who are the volunteers that are currently helping and can one still become a volunteer?
  • How are people able to assist the NSRI during this time to ensure the sustainability of the organisation?
